Prices & Times

Come and visit us and experience the beauty and intelligence of our elephants in a close-up interaction. Please note that since this is an educational and research facility, every booking includes a hands-on interaction. Neither a walk nor a swim can be booked without including an interaction.

Please book in advance as the elephants might be feeding on another farm or involved in research.

General Terms and Conditions

AWE operates on a 'first pay = first serve’ basis and only once we have received your payment in full will we secure your booking. Should you make a 'provisional' or 'pay on arrival' booking through our bookings office you may lose out on your space as 'provisional' bookings will not be held until payment is received in full, and we will take paying customers over provisional customers as many prvisionally booked customers do not arrive. Walk-ins are accepted, however we cannot guarantee that they will be able to join in on an activity if it is already fully booked, or if the elephants are otherwise engaged.

AWE reserves the right to terminate any elephant activity, at any stage, for any reason it deems neccessary for the safety or welfare of its elephants and clients. Safety procedures are explained in detail on arrival. Prices and activities subject to change without notice.
